For an example of creating a file and writing text to a file, see How to: Write Text to a File. For an example of reading text from a file, see How to: Read Text from a File. For an example of reading from and writing to a binary file, see How to: Read and Write to a Newly Created Data File.

The CanRead, CanSeek, and CanWrite properties are all set to true.

The capacity of the current stream automatically increases when you use the SetLength method to set the length to a value larger than the capacity of the current stream.

This constructor exposes the underlying stream, which GetBuffer returns.
